2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2004 (Bottle) Pours a light brown body with an off-white head that dispates quickly. Smells like opening a cheap box of chocolate covered cherries that are sold during the Christmas holiday season. Taste of cheap chocolate and canned cherry pie filling. Not an enjoyable flavor for a beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear dark ruby red, thin beige head, rich chocolate cover cherry aroma like the candy, rich chocolate flavor with a great candy cherry character, matches the aroma and the candy very well, just enough beer character to keep it in the beer family, the best you could hope from a cherry chocolate beer,
still the perfect chocolate covered cherry in a bottle,
Aroma: 8/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 15/20

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mothers Day tasting. Bottle. Poured a reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of cherry and chocolate. Light body with little finish, which was not like a sweet fruit brew. Weak version of style.

Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is chocolate and cherry dominant with light cookie malt, and earthy hops. Flavor is chocolate and cherry dominant with a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

Murky reddish-brown with a small head.This beer has a chocolate nose with a hint of cherry.It has alotta chocolate cherry flavor, but not much beer flavors to it. Its nothing I would want to drink more than a couple times a year.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle acquired in trade with beerhandy. Poured a medium, hazy, reddish brown color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries (who would have guessed?). Tastes of the same. Just like my grandfathers favorite chocolate covered cherry candy. Weaker and thin body. Interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from strykzone. Pours a reddish brown with a very small head. Aroma is certainly what the beer says, cherries and chocolate. Flavor has both as well, but it is a bit muddled and weak. I didn’t mind it as much as some, but it was a tad artificial and could have been done with a bit more care.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from a bottle at the Parade of Darks in Denver, Colorado. Hazy orange appearance reminiscent of a German Hefeweizen. Smells like those Hershey kisses with the cherry crap inside. Really in your face aroma. Thin wheat body that’s mostly dominated by the cherries and especially chocolate. Not chocolate malts, real chocolate. Very sweet finish.

This brewery is weird. First they put out a peppermint beer, and now this thing. It smells like artificial cherry flavoring with some weird chocolate scent as well… like candy… like some industrial product meant to smell like chocolate… remember those scratch-n-sniff stickers? That stuff. It’s clear dark red color confuses me… when I drink something chocolate, I expect it to be at least a little thick, but ALWAYS brown. This beats out Yoo-Hoo for the title of “thinnest body for a chocolate drink ever” title. Honestly, my brain is having a hard time with this beer being chocolate flavored but being the color of rust. Fizzy palate, god-awful weird flavor of some bad Dollar Store Halloween candy. This is a hell of an experiment, but no doubt an experiment gone wrong. Hey, at least there’s a brewery with enough balls (or not enough brains) to bottle and sell this stuff, let alone make it in the first place.
